One of my very very favorite books from when we were little. My dad used to read these poems to us all the time. Sometimes with faux British accents (especially when reading the part of the King or Queen). My brother and I loved each one of these little gems and as Brock and I have been reading them to baby in bed, I realized that I still love them just as much. Maybe more. They’re sort of like old songs whose lyrics you’ll never forget.
I didn’t remember that this copy was actually my dad’s when he was little. I only realized it when I brought it home from my parents’ house in September and looked at the publication date. You can see it’s been very well loved. I would recommend this little book to anyone looking for sweet sing-songy stories to read to your little ones. I think it helps that Mr. Milne wrote these for his son when he was four.
Here are a few of my favorites to welcome you into the weekend:
The simple illustrations are perfect too.
